As I recall, Danville awarded the contract to a new trash/recycle company with an increase in our rates a couple of years ago. Now we are going to raise the rates again by 8%? Ppl on fixed income do not have the luxury of requesting an increase of their SS or pension benefits to keep covering these type of costs.

I sent the town manager an email-our garbage is often missed and debris is all over the street falling out of cans in the neighborhood. Service should improve before rates are raised.

I totally agree with all of these comments. The rates are already too high, especially for the service we receive.
